Join Nature Canada and local naturalist experts for a fall BioBlitz at Mud Lake and help us locate and identify as many species as possible around the site. Follow local naturalist experts on a guided walk and learn to identify plants, birds, amphibians, reptiles and more! Everyone is welcome.

Be prepared to get out and get your hands dirty.  Remember to dress for the weather, wear solid shoes or rain boots and bring a snack and a water bottle. If you have field guides, binoculars, magnifying glasses or any other critter examining tools feel free to bring them along.
